Viral photo Doug Jones with his gay son Carson, sworn in by Mike Pence

quote [ Doug Jones defeated a Christian hardliner with even more extreme anti-LGBT beliefs than the vice president. With that context, his eyes set on Pence appear to offer a challenge, as Pence administers the oath. ...Carson’s glance at Pence, ...suggests direct communication between the two figures. ]

So much symbolism today, but so many open wounds.

Jones' son is probably standing there as a legal witness or has some other official reason for standing as part of the swearing-in ceremony, and for me that's a real shame.

I'd enjoy this picture so much more if I knew that the younger Jones was present for no other reason than to rub Pence's goddamn nose in the reality of a gay-friendly Senator with an openly gay son taking charge in the South.

I mean, you gotta grab life wherever you can.

It's a photo-op following the real swearing-in, so none of them really had to be there.

...and I'm disappointed again.

Pence did. Pence and Jones are the only ones that had to be there.
